There's no doubt that Idris Elba is a man of many talents. The actor, director and DJ has now launched him own record label, 7Wallace Music.
Elba announced the big news on Tuesday (July 3), when he signed his first artist, James BKS.
“James is a rare find,” Elba told Billboard. “His hip-hop sensibilities transfer to the other music he makes, he’s a nice person to work with and is gonna be a strong artist in the future. It’s a huge move for 7Wallace, a small indie label.”
“I want people to get to know my journey,” James said in a statement. “The song is the musical answer to my inner questions. Finally I can be proud of my roots and say this music is fully me.”
